Blue Lily, Country Violets, Rose, Summer Blossoms (1986)
Within the Livingware line, Blue Lily, Country Violets, Rose & Summer Blossoms were launched mid 1986. These patterns represent the first time the coupe plate shape was produced in beige rather than white. With the exception of Blue Lily, they are two-colour designs which are printed on the rim. Bowls & platters are decorated on the rim with a single coloured band.

At the time, white Livingware patterns came with Suprema glass-ceramic mugs, but a beige version of Suprema would not reach production until about 1991. In the meantime, beige Livingware patterns were paired with solid-coloured straight-sided stoneware mugs sourced from overseas. Blue Lily, Country Violets & Rose were available long enough to appear on beige Suprema mugs, but Summer Blossoms was not.
Blue Lily was discontinued January 1995. Rose & Country Violets disappeared sometime between 1993 & 1995, and Summer Blossoms was dropped by 1992; exact ending dates are not known.

Licensed glassware was made for all four of these patterns.
Indiana Glass produced a line of Drinkware For Corelle, and their glasses can be recognized by the double bulge near the bottom. This style was made for Blue Lily and Country Violets.
Libbey, or its subsidiary Crisa, produced glassware for Blue Lily and Country Violets with a single bulge at the base and a narrow top.
There is also glassware decorated with Rose and Country Violets by an unidentified maker. The style is straight-sided and narrower at the bottom with a thick heavy base.
Another style in Blue Lily, by an unidentified maker, came in two sizes, and these glasses have a slight hour-glass shape, narrowest in the middle and flared top and bottom; the base is flat and thin.
Summer Blossoms apparently has matching glassware, but the style is undetermined.
Cutlery with decorated plastic handles was also made for Blue Lily and Country Violets.
Gemco produced tabletop accessories with an official version of Blue Lily under the brand name "Corning Coordinates for Corelle". These products are clear glass and the pattern is printed on the beige plastic lid.
